C7VXZ8 I'm living in Alaska right now, so I wanted something Alaskan sounding. I wanted to name a male Balto, but I ended up adopting a female by the name of Survivor, which I thought was a terrible name for ner. Mostly because she wasn't sick with anything, she just might have possibly had contact with parvo, maybe. But the lady that I took her from was crazy and refused to take her to a vet under any condition, even for shots (was not a breeder), so I guess she's a survivor of that. Anyway, I ended up naming her Balta, after the hero dog Balto. And I wouldn't change it for anything.

Rod84 My wife & I had gone threw hundreds & hundreds of names & just could not find one! when our friends & family found out about us getting a GSD we heard all the stereo type comments on why would we even get a vicious dog like a GSD with our kids around. We were told those dogs are "killers"! One night my wife & I were sitting down watching our favorite show & I was upset & telling my wife how people could be so ignorant & then IT CLICKED! if people thought my dog would be a "vicious killer" then that's what he will be lol so I named him DEXTER after our favorite show on showtime lol Dexter Morgan. if you know the show then you get the killer refrence. Thanks to all those ignorant comments about my dog or else I don't know what he would be named. Now I couldn't imagine him as anything else. Oh & btw he couldn't be anything more far from a "vicious killer" if anything he's a goofy gentle dog! who my kids love & he loves them.

Toolman5 Our puppy, who we will be picking up on June 13th, is a male. I discussed names with my wife and kids. I came up with a list of all German names. We agreed on Hans (short for Hansel) because everyone seemed to like it. So little Hans is on his way!

Ada.tedder13 With my beagle I searched good beagle names and got Harper and she had a name before I even had her. Her name fits her perfect. Than when I got my GSD I tried the same thing.. it was a fail. I didn't like anything on the searches. So I just went on a baby name website and searched german names, because I knew that I wanted something german. I liked Greta, and Adele. I also saw on one website that mika was german but didn't see it on anything else. My husband was stuck on mika and I was stuck on Adele, we couldn't agree. So we searched some more, we had the puppy for about three days before we found a name that stuck, we picked Ada. I liked Adele because because it means noble and kind, which sounds like a german shepherd in my opinion. And Ada means noble as well so it stuck. Lil ms Ada's name fits her too.

So it just depends on u. Either u will find a name that u can't get off of and the pup will fit the name because u love both, or u will meet the pup and he/ she will name herself.
Good luck!

SoCal Rebell I am on my 4th GSD first one my dad named Rebell in 1966, he achieved champion obedience status 21 years ago I bought my own GSD and named him Rebell, he passed in 2005 so I got another GSD but couldn't bring myself to call him Rebell, I wanted a name that would instill a little fear so my next one was named Cutter. I purposely give my male 2 syllable name so ne they way you say their name when you accent a syllable he knows your tone and if he in trouble or is getting a direct command. Cutter passed to early at 8.5 years old, newest member is 7 month old Rebell........again

Alice13 After Alice Cullen. Thought the character would make a good impression of my pup. Smart, sharp, protective.

blueangele my first dog as an adult (GSD/elkhoud cross) was named Chinook because the day I got him there was chinook wind blowing. My second dog (gsd/lab cross) was named Morgan because I was working heavily with morgan horses (she is 13 now and still acts like a pup) my next dog was named Viento, spanish for wind (gsd/? cross), he passed away last summer because of cancer. When I got my new dog, I decided to stick with the wind theme and Zephyr it is. He is my first full GSD and quite the character, I am now kinda wishing I had named him something like breeze or calm waters...maybe it would help mellow him out ;-)

Skywalkers Mom I adopted my guy from a rescue. He was there for awhile as a pup(owner surrender because he would get to big) fools. He is a great dog and friend and sneaky lovely and teacher and learner. They named him Skywalker. The rescue also typed on docs Sky Walker. They are 2 entirely different referrences. But Skywalker fits and works and its totally him.
